About the Position:
This position is located in a Military Entrance Processing Station; San Juan, PR.  Founded in 1521 by Ponce de León, the capital of Puerto Rico, San Juan, is the oldest city on US territory. The metropolitan area of San Juan is home to half of the island's almost four million citizens; it is also the heart of Puerto Rican tourism. The city is best known for its beautifully restored historic district, Old San Juan, situated on a rocky peninsula girded by twenty-feet thick walls jutting into the crashing Atlantic surf. Unlike other such gems of Spanish colonial architecture, San Juan also offers miles of smooth, clean beaches, a wide range of accommodation, fabulous restaurants and a lively nightlife.

Federal employees in Puerto Rico are currently entitled to receive a 4.20% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) in addition to the base salary.  This is subject to change.
